Las Cruces Overview

Las Cruces is the second largest city in New Mexico, with a population of roughly 110,000.

The town is known for its proximity to the Organ Mountains; its popularity as a retirement community; and New Mexico State University - the largest land grant university in the United States.

March to April are dry and windy, often featuring massive duststorms. May and June are slightly more humid, and feature occasional sudden downpours, locally known as monsoon season. July through September are dry and hot, with temperatures routinely approaching 110 F with near zero humidity. October through February sees daily highs in the mid 70's and nightly lows in the mid 30's, with temperatures occasionally dropping as low as -10 F.

Las Cruces is located within 1 hour's drive of El Paso, Alamogordo, White Sands Missile Range (and National Monument), Deming, and Ciuded Juarez.

Las Cruces is a good place to stop for all supplies especially if you dont want to stop in El Paso. The last time I spent time in Las Cruces it was a pleasant place to stay.
